Wifi or Eth is completely gone

Hi all

Me again. What an unlucky day!

Running Dragonized here, Wifi or Eth is completely gone. I am using my phone tethered via usb to send this messages.

I have tried to restart / reinstall NetworkManager also plasma-nm
Interfaces seems down cannot bring them up:

I believe 2 and 5 are the affected interfaces. Any suggestion?

I could go back a snapshot, but I really like to figure things out, since no change was made...

Thanks

I think this dmesg output is related

And if you boot into a different kernel (LTS)?

same with LTS.

tried restoring older snapshots. still the same.

However I can boot Fedora on another drive and the wifi works great.

Something must be up on my Garuda install.

There is where I would start. I'm on ethernet and in Arch. Also, no Intel wifi chipset.

But I believe I saw a post similar to yours yesterday, so a search is always in order. Failing good results on that, @tbg is quite the network guy and should pop in at some point.

rolled back to 5.11.8zen1-1 and it's fine.

I think the problem is 5.12.11

I am gonna run more tests and see.

Are you using any virtualization, by any chance?

host-based you mean? yes I use KVM / VirtManager - QEMU

Garuda runs on bare metal.

I can confirm that 5.12.11-zen1-1-zen works fine.

I believe 5.12.10-zen1-1-zen was the version with the problem.

Just saw this, as I've been extremely busy lately. As @c00ter was so kind to point out initially, these type of problems are often kernel related.

With Intel based adapters, changing your kernel or firmware version is often the easiest solution.

The next most likely fix is adding modifications to your wifi's driver options.

Glad you got it sorted. :+1:

That's nice that your issue has been solved.

I am marking @ c00ter's post as solution.

I don't think a downgraded package (partial upgrade status) is a solution.
Maybe we keep it open until it is confirmed (after a proper fix from upstream, or a different kernel).

Has anyone reported upstream (kernel or Arch)?
If nobody reports this issue upstream, how is it going to be fixed?
Is there any other report online?

Well, I guess 5.12.11 have fixed the issue, as per user's post.

Maybe it was issue only with

Sorry, I missed it.
